I think a man is condemned to perpetual thinking—evolutionary or revolutionary—because of the grey matter he/she is endowed with. It is a non-terminating process generating a profusion of seemingly profound bits of enlightenment but never being perfect and hence only to be replaced by an ever newer invasion of similar expositions or findings. A new Prophet or no prophet the tremendous flow of the mighty current of eternity will never come to an end. Concurrence or congruence will be fitful and transitory. Hence, the ultimate is the ecstasy of illusion. It is up to you to halt for a moment and savour it or just carry on rolling further and further with the insatiable quest remaining unquenched as ever.
Call me a nihilist? I won't mind.
